Are you planning to move to Data Engineering?

Are you an ETL dev wanting to be a DE?

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Data Engineering is a vast field and a multidisciplinary area.

Basic Linux commands to advanced ETL tools and complex Data Modelling Data Engineering involves a lot of learning.

If you have seen the 2022 state of Data Engineering toolset image, chances are you are even more confused.

Airflow, DBT, Snowflake, Fivetran, Synapse, BigQuery, Databricks, Azure Data factory, AWS Athena, Glue, and Redshift are just a few to name and are growing by the day.

While all this may feel daunting, it isn't.

All senior Data Engineers will tell you : 

"Learn the fundamentals well. You can move from one tool to the other without much hassle."
